Great Scott! This is heavy…
Deadline reports that Robert Zemeckis is in talks right now to turn his 1985 hit, Back to the Future into a Broadway smash. He is working with his co-writer Bob Gale and film composer Alan Silvestri to see if a stage version is possible.
The three film franchise has grossed nearly a billion worldwide and would be a good way to restart the money making.
Zeneckis’ ImageMovers would be producing the project if it moves forward. Silvestri has composed the music for Zemeckis’ other films Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and Cast Away.
Now, all they need is a stage that can handle a DeLorean, a Clock Tower, The Twin Pines Mall parking lot, Hill Valley Town Square and a van full of wrong Libyans.
And Huey Lewis.
